The Little Taunus Bookshop
Ordering Service for Schools
What once started out as a quaint little bookshop in Oberursel has now become a full-service ordering service
for schools all over Germany. Over the time it became obvious that many schools, especially international or
bilingual ones, wanted more than just someone ordering and delivering books. They want service, consultation,
recommendations - not just generic lists, but information tailored to their needs. Many regular bookshops cannot
deliver such a full service because of the time and dedication it takes and which cannot be provided in addition to
the daily business of a bookshop.
The Little Taunus Bookshop is successfully working together with several schools,
offering them a highly personalized service they will not easily find anywhere else. Naturally, I can order
school books and books for the school library, just like any other bookshop can. I work with wholesalers in
Germany, the UK, Finland and the US and of course am always able to set up new connections to ensure that all our
customers can get the schoolbooks best for their program and their students.
Still, good service means far more than ordering books swiftly, reliably and for fair prices. So apart from doing
that, I specialize in personalized recommendations for school or class libraries - both for German and English
books. You name the age group(s), the preferred topics or just ask for the most popular titles and I'll send you
detailed suggestions, tailored to your wishes. You tell me what topics will be taught in your classes during
the next months and I give you suggestions for secondary reading about those topics for your school library.
This can save you amazing amounts of time while ensuring that your students have the most popular and current books
in both fiction and non-fiction. If you want to keep updated on what is new and hot on the children's and young
adult's book market, I will be pleased to send you regular updates with book recommendations.
So, to sum up, what can I do for you? A lot:
- Ordering schoolbooks and books for your library from Germany, other European countries and the USA
- Fair prices due to getting books delivered directly from the UK and the USA
- Book recommendations and book research for the school library, also in coordination with curriculum topics
- Regular book recommendations, if wanted
- Recommendations for books and games that make learning English easier and more pleasant for children
- Free delivery of ordered books
Need to set up a whole new library (German or English) or a new section? I have
helped new schools to set up their libraries - from making detailed suggestions to getting the books there. Every
librarian knows how much time it saves to get competent suggestions that can be relied upon.
If you are interested in my services for your school, just contact me and I will be happy to stop by and
discuss personalized options. Indulge in some really exceptional service.
